Summer Reading

View from the top of Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore
We are back to school next week. We kicked off with a few days of PD, and ended for a long Independence Day holiday weekend, by being treated to a wonderful sun-soaked afternoon on the top of the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel.

I have had a great summer - lots of sunshine, swimming and reading. I found a great balance between relaxing and learning, and thought I would list the great books I had the pleasure to read over the six week break.

Coraline (graphic novel) by Neil Gaiman and P Craig Russell
Tooth and Nail by Ian Rankin
Strip Jack by Ian Rankin
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
Black Swan Green by David Mitchell
